The world’s most premium whiskey scotch collection is up for sale now and is estimated to sell for almost $10.5 million. The collection which has close to almost 4000 bottles was put together by the deceased Richard Gooding, an ardent connoisseur of premium spirits. The enthusiast is said to have flown down to Scotland multiple times in order to bid for rare collections during auctions that are frequently held there. The entire collection is to be sold in to separate lots over the course of next year.

"It's incredibly rare that a complete whisky collection of this size and value comes to auction at once, but it is the sheer diversity and comprehensiveness of Mr. Gooding's collection that makes it so intriguing. He was a perfectly eclectic and passionate collector, often flying around the world to source elusive whiskies, and while there are a number of high profile bottles like the 1926 Macallans and Black Bowmores, he also amassed a treasure of enchanting gems from such a wide range of distilleries, including many that are long lost," Becky Paskin, whisky expert and writer, said in a statement.

The collector, Richard Gooding, has spent decades together in search for the rarest bottles. His Macallan 50 Year Old Lalique Six Pillars Collection is set to go for almost $ 1.2 million.
